Paul Coutts: Faces a fitness race ahead of the Millwall game

The Rams boss was without Coutts, 24, at Blackpool after the player sustained a thigh injury during the previous game against Peterborough.

Derby will complete their Championship campaign against Millwall at Pride Park on Saturday and Clough is optimistic about the Scot's chances of being available.

"Couttsy picked up a slight thigh strain against Peterborough and it was a bit disappointing not to have him available because he'd done so well against his old club," Clough told the club's official website.

"It's nothing too serious and he made the trip to Bloomfield Road with us, so we hope with a bit of treatment this week he should be all right to face Millwall."

The Blackpool fixture was just the second match Coutts has missed this season. He also missed the trip to Huddersfield in September when illness ruled him out.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
